I finally got back to get this summit. The first time I tried was with Greg and I stopped about 1.5 miles away from the top. This time I hiked with Dean and Andy, and I made it! Awesome hike and all worth it.
You truly earn this one. After over ten miles of hiking in, you get a nice scramble to reach the top, nothing hard but what eats at you as you are sitting on the summit looking down at the highway a couple miles away, is that you have to retrace those over ten miles to get back to your vehicle that you'll be driving on that highway you are looking at from the summit. Did this one with SP member Kadee of SLC and Andy Martin of Tucson. Great company who made this hike "fun".It was pretty hot on the return so cooler weather is best. Carry plenty of water.
